LIBER XXV
                          THE STAR RUBY.

   Facing East, in the centre, draw deep deep deep thy breath closing thy
 mouth with thy right forefinger prest against thy lower lip.  Then dashing
 down the hand with a great sweep back and out, expelling forcibly thy breath,
 cry AO ANTO KAKOAIMONO.
   With the same forefinger touch thy forehead, and say OI, thy member, and
 say  AE {Note 1}, thy right shoulder, and say IXYPOS, thy left shoulder,
 and say EYXAPITO; then clasp thine hands, locking the fingers, and cry IA.
 Advance  to the East. Imagine strongly a Pentagram, aright, in thy forehead.
 Drawing  the hands to the eyes, fling it forth, making the sign of Horus and
 roar PION.  Retire thine hand in the sign of Hoor-paar-Kraat.
   Go round to the North and repeat; but say NUIT.
   Go round to the West and repeat; but whisper BABALON.
   Go round to the South and repeat; but bellow HADIT.
   Completing the circle widdershins, retire to the centre and raise thy voice
 in the Paian, with these words I AN, with the signs of N.O.X.
   Extend the arms in the form of a Tau and say low but clear:

 PO MOY IYE OIX MOY TEETAPXAI EI EIA
 XYNOXE EAPITEPA AIMONO EEI AP EPI
 MOY O ATHR TN ENTE KAI EN THI THGHI
  ATHR TN E ETHKE.

   Repeat the Cross Qabalistic, as above, and end as thou didst begin.

 thereof.
